Beware Posting Photos From Your Phone

October 30, 2010
Brrrr. It's quite chilly here this morning, although it should warm up to the mid 50's later today. We'll be getting socked with the colder weather this week coming. All week, only in the 40's for days, and 30's for nights.
Miss Audrey is already at the airport waiting for her flight to take her back home to Virginia. I know she has to go home, but I miss her already. Travel safely Audrey. This visit was so very short and busy. These past few weeks would have been so difficult to get through without the help and support of my fantastic family and friends.
I'm sitting here now watching the news, and one item really caught my attention. When you take photos with all your smart phones, and then post your photos on the web (facebook, twitter, etc.) you are giving the whole world a lot of personal information about yourself. Info such as your exact location, and a photo of your location. In order to counteract this, you have to go into your phone and turn OFF something called "geo tags on photos." Or you can go online to to learn more.
Today, I have some bird photos to share. This first photo captures a power struggle over the rights to "first pick" from the dumpster. The second photo shows the loser calling for more backup, and the last photo is one of gulls that we had been feeding with bits of our lunch.

There was a lovely bright spot yesterday, when the mail was delivered. I received a lovely birthday card from my friend, Kyra. It came a few days early, but it really brightened my day. Thank you so much Kyra.

That's all for this morning, folks. I need to do a bit of laundry (lots of scatter rugs and doggie blankets to wash lately. Tootsie is trying so hard to adjust to all the changes that are happening, and sometimes it gets a bit much for her. But, no problem - we have lots of scatter rugs and doggie blankets on hand. Till tomorrow, Y'all have a magnificent day.
Hugs, Edna B.

Oh gosh, the post did its best, it arrived real quick, my card. Pity that Audrey already had to leave, but although you must feel a bit lost at the moment, it's also good to have time for yourself now, which you really need!
Take as much rest as you can, take a nap now and then and then every day life is ticking on the window again. Hope you can adjust to the changed situation, sweetie.
Have a big hug

When my Mom died no one would let me be alone for a few weeks. I so deeply appreciated that but I also found that after 'd taken Grandma hoe and finally had some alone time, that's when I really got to grieve and start healing. I hope you get that from some alone time too. Tootsie won't let you be completely alone. Azzie was a great comfort to me then, too!

Happy birthday in advance. May your new year bring you more comfort, strength, love and happiness than any sorrows.
